Wind Advisory for Southern Florida!
Good Sunday Morning to all! We got another early start again. Since the forecast predicts winds of 25 mph with gusts up to 40 mph, we are using yesterday's method of taking advantage of the tailwinds! I drove Glenn 15 miles north to the bridge that connects the Keys to the mainland and he will ride back south 40 miles so he can make up the miles he missed yesterday. I am back at our Key Largo Hotel for now (as you can see in the photos, it is not a bad place to have to wait) and will pick him up later 25 miles south of here. The plan is unclear after that....we'll see how the winds are treating Glenn. I might take him north of Miami and he will ride south again....this is not a very fuel efficient cycling expedition!
We are enjoying and appreciate all of your comments and emails! Thanks!
This is the long, winding road that Glenn is traveling this AM. Not a car for miles!
